I'm setting up this Ubuntu dual boot. I have two users, one called smallcomputer that is supposed to be an administrator account, and one called bob that I plan to use bob for everyday surfing and stuff. I will use the adminstrator account for doing advanced stuff like changing system configuration. Bob doesn't have a password, but smallcomputer has.
I would like the system to boot into bob's account directly when I start the computer, and not ask which account I want to log in to. How do I do that? I feel this should be able to be done since he does not have a password.
I also have some problem with when I'm logged in as bob and want to do a
sudo command. Sometimes I see tutorials online about changing something and they say "write this in the terminal". I can never execute a
sudo command logged in as bob. I tried typing my adminstrator password and typing no password at all (just pressing return) and the terminal just says it's the wrong password. Those are the only accounts I know of on the system. If I'm logged in as administrator I have no problem executing
sudo commands. Why can't I do it from the regular user account? Does calling
sudo (when logged in as bob) try to log in as administrator account or is it some level beyond that like some root account?
It's Ubuntu 12.10.
Thanks for any help
